Library Journal
L. Frank Baum's classic fantasy novel has captivated readers for more than 100 years, and the film version is an icon of American popular culture. This collection, a follow-up to the authors' Alice in Wonderland-themed Everything Alice, presents a wide variety of Wizard of Oz-themed projects. Most of the entries involve sewing, cooking, or papercraft, and the crafts tend to be easy enough for beginners to handle. Projects range from the obvious (sequined ruby slippers) to those with a more tenuous connection to the source material (bran muffins?), but most are true to the 1939 film version of the classic book. VERDICT Fans of the book or the movie will enjoy this whimsical collection of projects, as will anyone who wants to have an Oz-themed party.
